Title

Crow Indians displaying elk's tooth capes and headdress.

Description

Four Crow Indian men stand together outdoors by a small tree with their backs to the camera. They wear ground-length cloth capes decorated with elk teeth and a stripe down the middle. Three men wear feather headdresses and one wears a brimmed hat with a band made of a fabric with stars. The men face a large group of people (seated, standing, and on horseback) who are gathered near a shade arbor made of tree branches. A few people are holding umbrellas.
